I was raised to believe women are saints. I've spent a lifetime unlearning that awful piece of propaganda. And here's the myth being passed on to the next generation of boys and girls. #

Truth is that people of all genders come in all kinds. Everyone can be mean at times and powerless at others. I've seen two girls gang up on a boy and reduce him to tears. I felt, as did every other adult in the room, that the boy should man-up, take it like a man, be strong. He was just a little kid! Luckily none of us acted on that bullshit, and we asked the girls to be nicer to the poor boy. #

Ask any women, in private, if all women are saints and you'll get stories! They know that they compete with a bunch of kids in adult bodies who don't play fair. Now, maybe it's time to let the boys in on that little secret too.#
